Armenian producers have agreed on supply on cigarettes to Iraq in the current
Talking to ARMINFO, President of the Armenian LTD International Masis Tabak
Michael Vardanyan says that an oral agreement on this was reached last year when
Iraqi specialists visited Armenia. Supply of five containers of cigarettes
monthly is in question, which is a rather big lot, he says. For example,
Vardanyan says that 45 containers of cigarettes of native and foreign producers
are monthly sold in the country. At present, Armenian producers expected Iraqi
orders. The president of the company says that cigarettes from Armenia will be
supplied in spite of the fact that a joint production of cigarettes with
participation of the largest Armenian producer Grand Tobacco was established in
Iran last year.
It should be noted that there are two big producers of cigarettes in Armenia,
Grand Tobacco and International Masis Tabak. Three billion cigarettes are daily
sold in the country. The share of local production is half of the market.
